Subject: What a night - 30 years ago!
SPAC 1983 was quite the show! I had just got home to the east coast from my first year of school at Humboldt State University - had also just seen all 3 shows at the Greek in Berkeley (check out the Sunday show - Dan Healy's b-day). Great road trip up to SPAC from NJ, camped in the parking lot, excellent party scene. The monster 2nd set with the rain, thunder and lightening was freaking amazing - especially the huge bolts of lightening during the Wheel. The boys just kept playing with no let-up after the killer Morning Dew. This recording brings back some great memories - have listened to the 2nd set twice in the past few weeks. Enjoy!

...there would be a pristine SBD of this show. Yes, there are great Auds but none capture the truly unique percussion during the Scarlet intro. Mickey and Billy treated us to something akin to Afro-Caribbean that I've never heard before or after.

Will never forget the rain, and the Fire, and the lightning and the Wheel ... was at this show with Mr. Miller. Doesn't get much better than this my friends. Thanks for the memories, thanks for the stellar tunes.

Subject: Start of Scarlet
I can see clearly now the rain is gone. At the start of Scarlet and just before Fire. As we all know it wasn't just raining it was down pouring .This show and the merryweather shows it rained as hard as i can recall its ever rained for an out door show.... Brent plays I can see clearly now a few times during the opening of the 2nd set. This sounds pretty darn good to me.

Subject: definitely an upgrade
Hadn't listened to this one in a while because the other postings just didn't do that night at SPAC justice. From the lightning during Wheel to the mellow scene on the lawn to the great time at the campground to the wonderful energy this show packed to the great friends I was hanging with, just a tremendous way to spend a weekend in June of '83. Dare I say there was not better way to spend a weekend in June of '83? And to finally here it so crisply brings a smile to this old boys face. Keep on rocking in the free world my friends.....

Subject: the upgrade
I concur. As wonderful as it is to have three(!) Charlie Millerized sources for this monster, this one takes the crown. All three have their strengths (and the Jim Wise runs this a very close second, imho), but this is the all-around best. Upgrade yourself. Thank you!

Subject: Thanks
I was at this show. Phenomenal, and until now a truly representative copy was not available. This recording captures this show like none other on this site. I don't know that a soundboard would do a better job. Thanks guys, this is the recording I'd been waiting for.
